Workers’ Compensation Benefits in New York
In New York, most employers must carry workers’ compensation coverage for their employees. If you’re injured on the job, workers’ compensation benefits usually cover medical expenses, a portion of lost wages, and in some cases, disability benefits. Dependents of workers who die due to work-related injuries also are eligible for compensation.
It’s important to understand your rights and responsibilities as an injured worker. Unfortunately, employers and their insurance companies may be resistant to paying the full amount of benefits an injured worker is owed. Our workers’ compensation lawyers help you through the claims process from start to finish and can assist with appeals if a claim is denied. As the largest workplace injury law firm on Staten Island, we’ve helped thousands of clients receive the full benefits and compensation they deserve.
Our workers’ compensation attorneys handle all types of cases involving on-the-job injuries, including:
- Asbestos-related conditions

If you have a condition you believe is job-related, an occupational disease lawyer at Nappa, Monterosso & Poznansky, LLP, will evaluate your case at no charge and advise you of your options for recovering workers’ compensation benefits. Our workers’ compensation attorneys help you understand your rights and protect your interests.
Social Security Disability Benefits in New York
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are designed to assist people who are unable to work or support themselves due to a disability. To qualify for disability benefits, you must have worked for a certain number of years and paid a sufficient amount of Social Security taxes.
